Our members are both commercial and hobbyist beekeepers, meetings are held seven times throughout the year and often include informative guest speakers.  Members are kept up to date on the latest advancements in beekeeping and bee health.
Memberships are $25 / year and new members have access to the mentorship program which partners an experienced beekeeper with a beginner.
Starting as early as January each year, there are courses offered to introduce Beekeeping to beginners.  The EDBA and Alberta Agriculture offer some of the most well known and respected classes in Edmonton and area.  Another good starting point is to do some reading about Beekeeping for Beginners (found here)

Words are like bees, some create honey while others leave a sting.
